"I enjoyed this movie as well (see my other reviews). The plot was pretty okay - with me it's about the plot. Overdubs - questionable! Nice fighting scenes! This is another picture with a white haired villan that must be killed. I would have loved to actually see what these "18 Jade Arhats" really looked like. But, maybe that was cut out of my version! The fighting scenes were okay - I've seen better. Some of the Kung Fu moves were worth backing up to watch again. Although this movie was okay, what's up with the 2 minute last fighting scene? What a bomber! Okay, so you discovered his weakness 30 seconds into the fight and you kill him 10 seconds after that? Come off it! Sorry, can't sell that to me. Now do you want to see a pretty good last fighting scene - watch "NINJA CHECKMATE (MYSTERY OF CHESS BOXING)! The Ghost-Face Killer in that movie had a weakness, but it took him a little while to be FINISHED OFF! A stronger last fighting scene would have earned this movie to be in my top 5% of all-time classics."

"Two words for ya !!! Lohan Palm..This is a one hitter quitter technique and very few individuals know of .One hit and you're a doorknob..Two guy's posses it; one good guy one bad guy and they're on a collision course (obviously)..This is a mystery thriller with some great Kung Fu in it..Lee Jan-Wa travels and duals other fighters and when he's threw playing around with them he puts them down.When he's attacked in an attempted assassination he breaks out the deadly technique. One hit and they're outa here.Chang Yi's a Kung Fu master and x-crook who's still looking for the rest of the Arhats he stole years ago and also knows the deadly technique..When the both of them meet up through Polly Kuan, who is actually looking for the one person who stole the arhats to begin with; things get ugly...the lighting in some scenes was horrible which is the only reason it deosn't get 5 stars.the movie is a great plot with some great fight scenes in it.someones getting their @$$ kicked every 7 minuites it seems like. A must have in your collection..."

"I definitely Have To Disagree With The Previous Two Reviewers Of This Flick, 'cause they have no idea what they're talking about...! Man, this film is electrifyingly, edge of your seat thrilling from start to finish. Beautiful Plot and Story, Beautifully Directed and Choreograph Fighting; and Did I Mention Top Notch Performances From Lo Lieh And Chang Yi...?! Ugh..., Trust Me, This Movie Is a Must See, Buy And Collectors Item For The Classics. The Scenes In Every Part Is Perfect and Clear and The Dubbing Is Crisp. I Don't Know Where This Movie Was Hiding All This Time, But I'm Glad I Got It, 'cause I'll Be Watching It Over and Over Again. Great, Great Movie. One Of The All Time Best."
